Presentation Synopsis

Managing project scope (Change Management) is a constant struggle for project managers.  Stakeholders are often negotiating additional functionality in the middle of the project lifecycle creating challenges to the project schedule and budget.  However, this change management struggle is only one type of project change management challenge that project managers face.  Enter—organizational change.  Organizational change management challenges present additional challenges to even the most seasoned project manager, as stakeholders are continually pressed to do business in a new way.  Negotiating these waters in the midst of managing timelines, quality concerns, budget issues, and requirements can seem almost impossible.  However, understanding the fundamentals of organizational change management and how these fundamentals coincide with project scope (change management) can give project managers an advantage as they lead and communicate.  This session will focus on the differences and interconnectivity between project scope (change management) and organizational change management.  Be prepared to participate in some exercises that challenge you to change the way you do some ordinary things!
